Similar problem observed with Dapper as of 2006/04/11 (all updates applied).

The driver for my printer (Epson C46) is present on the system, in the /usr/share/cups/model/gutenprint/5.0/en/ directory, but isn't loaded into the gnome-cups-manager -> add printer -> driver listing.

gunzip'ing the .ppd.gz file, and moving it to e.g. /usr/share/cups/model/foomatic-ppds/cups-included appears to make it work again.

As far as I'm aware I have all gutenprint and cups packages installed.

Please fix it :)
